Picked up a 1950 Sunbeam automatic yesterday. NOT a gun. It's a toaster.

Anyways... let a Marine get his hands on a working 63 year old toaster, and waddaya think is gonna happen? That's right... took it apart and cleaned the hell out of it...

I asked C3 if he had the prints laying around for one, but, alas, he only has the prints for the 1948 model. They ain't the same.

I'm trying to get this sucker together this afternoon. When I get off work, I only have 8 hours before I have to be back in this evening, and I have a lot of housework to do too.

May sell said toaster. I paid 7 bucks, and some of the same model are selling on Ebay for over $200. Average seems to be around 60-100 bucks though. Still, great profit if I get it working again. The toaster racks won't stay down.


It's the T-20 model. Anyone have any info?

Holy cow!!! This thing really is "Automatic Beyond Belief!"
As long as the thermo sensor is good (it worked before I took it apart), then I should be able to just plug it in and go!

I've been thinking I messed up on reassembly because the racks won't stay down, but apparently they're "silent", and ease down when current heats up an internal spring. When the sensor thinks your toast is done, it shuts off the current, which allows the spring to contract, raising the toast again.

But, after watching videos on how this thing operates, I think I have it put back together right, and it should be fine.

Jeez man, the only plastic on this damn thing is the base with the handles, the insulation on the wire (which I think is rubber), and there would be a plastic control knob, but it's missing. The stub sticking out turns easily by hand though.

The rest of it is stamped chrome plated steel on the outside, and just stamped steel on the inside. Not sure what the elements are made of.

Yes. It's heavy. Very heavy for a damn toaster. But it's freaking sweet. I love retro stuff. Or, C3 may still consider this kind of thing "futuristic" or "space-agey"

anything past about 1940 is probably futuristic or space age to C3!
